1. We love manual tools in our home! We live in a 1929 character home, so plug ins aren't as plentiful. It's definitely easier for us to do without.
    • Oh I totally understand. I grew up in a farmhouse built in the late 1800s. Someone went through and rehabbed the electrical in the 1950s and it stayed that way ever since. There were two plugs, one on either side of the kitchen. When you ran an electric hand mixer, all of the lights in the house would dim! LOL.
  2. These would also be handy in case of a power outage! Great post, thanks for sharing!
    • Absolutely! When things like hurricanes or snowstorms, some people end up without power for days and even weeks. Having an arsenal of no-power cooking tools are essential for folks in those situations. At the very least, a manual can opener can save your life! I'm glad you enjoyed the article. Thanks for reading.
